Not applying the ruling of waṭan on a study or work place

Q: What is the rule of the prayers and fasting of those who travel for an indefinite period, such as the students of Islamic studies who go to the Islamic seminaries, or government employees who are transferred to a certain city for work purposes for an indefinite period?
A: The rules of waṭan do not apply to the place of study or work unless they have stayed in the place of study or work for such a time that according to the common view it is considered to be their waṭan.
